Scrappy Cabin Swap!

Before you say just what we need another swap.....hear me out. This one is different. This one is easy. This one uses all those scraps you have laying around. This one isn't due till January. This one involves swapping SQUARES not finished quilts. Do I have your attention now?

Here are the details. The swap will be open to 20 people. This will be a centralized swap,meaning each participant makes and sends to me 20 squares. I will then swap out the squares (yes you will get one of your own back....this makes it WAY simpler for me)and mail them to you.

1.Square is made using a 2" center square. The 12 logs arranged clockwise in fashion are made from 1" strips. See above picture. The square should be a petite 5" when you are done. Each participant uses their own unique fabrics,so it will be a wonderfully scrappy little quilt full of color and variety when we are done! They can all 20 be identical,or all 20 different.

2.Place your 20 squares in a ziplock bag. On the outside of the ziplock bag,write your name and address in permanent marker. Include a self-addressed and STAMPED (not metered)mailer for me to return your swapped squares. The squares are due to me by January 17th. LOADS of time. My goal will be to have them in your hands by February.....a nice little after-holiday project.

3. If you are interested in participating,please leave a comment and/or email me. The first 20 are in. Once I have all the participants,I will email everyone my mailing info. I may set up a blog for us all to be part of to post info/pictures,etc. Any questions? Hope you can play!

Tracy, if needed I can do two sets if we don't get the full 20 signups. Maybe others could too. These will go fast once they are started. I started pulling strings from my scrap bin to cut already and I won't want to stop I'm sure!
